    The luster of my '04 Axis is fading. Just a few things I can think of to nit about: sloping top tube means less frame opening for shouldering, carbon fork and Shorty 6's = brakes squeal without huge toe-in, square taper BB is flexy, triple crank is a waste, and the seatpost cable routing doo-hickey on the 49cm is just lame.

    Here's what I'm build for this upcoming season. It's scandium, not as durable as 7005 aluminum but it's featherlight and I got a good deal on it.

    I was.. Until I found a much better deal in a Soul. If you are really considering that Axis, consider a Soul. www.ridesoul.com

    Yes they are. Call and ask for Chad (He's usually the one who picks up)
    Bad ass bikes; I am getting mine before they release to the public. For around the same price as that Axis you can get a boat load better bike. My bike is going to be bad ass; pretty much everything on the bike is better than the Bianchi.

    What's it gonna have? Frame-wise and components spec.

    I posted my build sheet not long ago. Look for 2005 Soul Monk. It is aluminum, however, I forgot the specific weight.

    linky!

    I called and asked about the weight; they are getting back to me. I left a message.

    Yes they are; in fact, they really only mark their componants up by about 10 percent. Very nice guys. Tell them I sent you, please. I priced out this bike and if I were paying retail it would be about 2 grand or so. I was initially only going to buy the frame, as well. But they made me a deal I could not refuse!
